Vegan Banana Bread | optional: gluten-free

Easy & delicious recipe for Banana Bread :)

Is there something better than fresh out of the oven, still warm Banana bread? I just love the texture and the sweet-ish taste. Just like cake, but in a healthy version, that actually fills you up! Perfect for those of you that have a sweet tooth 😉

Often, I bake Banana bread if I already know that I might be short on time and/or won’t have a good option to eat out (e.g. at university). It’s a good option for a takeaway lunch because it holds its texture and is easy to eat on the go.

Depending on the oats you use, the recipe can easily be made gluten-free.

Oats are one of my favorite staple foods: healthy, tasty and versatile! Besides protein (ca. 12%) they contain fiber (10%), vitamins, and minerals. Even though oats are, in theory, gluten-free, most of the products suffer from contamination with gluten. Thus, please consider picking gluten-free labeled oats, when coeliac disease is an issue. (Read more about gluten-free oats here, Coeliac UK).

Buckwheat Flour is a gluten-free flour made from buckwheat. It contains protein (ca. 10%), fiber and carbohydrates, furthermore vitamins and minerals. It’s a really nice gluten-free flour to bake with because it thickens up with fluids and binds the whole mixture.

I hope you’ll like this Banana bread recipe! What is your favorite type of Banana Bread?
